After going to the gym 2 to 3 days a week for the past 3 weeks I was finally able to run! Its been over 2 years, almost 3 since I was able to get to a run. It was a slow run and only for about a 90 seconds but for those 90 seconds it was all running. I was so happy! And exhausted. But I can't wait to go again and keep this up.

Aweeeeeeeeee so happy for you! I picked up running last summer. Even did a few 5ks. Really working on my time, dropped 35 pounds. Well, I lost my mojo over the winter. 1st day back at the gym today and cant wait to get running again soon.

i have never ever been a runner. I think my problem is that I went from the couch to trying to flat out run. I didn't condition my body or work up to it. But today, at 35 min out of my 40 min work out I finally felt that energy. I didn't plan it, I just went. And my knees didn't kill me and even my fat didn't hurt moving around like it would. I wanted to cry I was so happy

Been there, mama!!  That's the BEST THING EVER!!  I was never a runner, either, and I almost cried the first time I ran a mile.  When I hit major milestones, I totally cry!

Great job, mama!!  WOO HOO!!!!!

to me, it is a victory. I've never really wanted to run But I've always wanted the ability to run. I finally stopped giving up and finally did it. now I just have to keep moving. I want to be able to run 30 minutes to start with

I hope you didn't take this as me saying it wasn't a victory. Everytime we push ourselves to do something we didn't think we could do it should be celebrated! You've got the right attitude, you'll meet your goals for sure!

You have the right attitude!  You'll reach those 30 minutes before you know it (and likely want to cry again!  LOL).  =)
